"Both my grandfathers passed on while I was very young, so I have no memory of them.
My mother and other relatives have shared with me their impressions of them so that I would have something to pass on about them to my kids:
They were both assholes."
"I never knew my grandfather (either of them; they both passed before i was born. From what i have heard of them, i think it a blessing in thin disguise). However, from my paternal grandfather, i was given his shaving brush and tobacco pipe. I…"
"Pocket Watch, handkerchief, pen knife, suspenders, notebook with important phone numbers, addresses, quotes, appointments, etc. He had a hanging calendar that he actually used. He always wore an American Flag pin on whatever suit he wore. He also…"
"Sure Brian. By uncommon (speaking pretty broadly) I mean a watch brand not commonly seen everyday (not just people wearing them but in advertising like you mentioned) in the USA. Luxury watches I would consider common (in the USA) would be…"

"I guess my categorization of southerners isn't sufficiently developed. Oh well. Take the southern piece out of it and it's all the same: Denny is stupid, racist, and is the (ostensible) adult whose day apparently is not busy enough that he…"
"First signs of spring finally in FL panhandle today. So, my youngest son and I put up a new Eastern Blue Bird box where old one had started falling apart. Was nice to see the blue birds nearby waiting for their new real estate. Good bonding/teaching…"
"It's true Chuck, there are many fine Southerners, such as yourself. Denny, I think, represents some of the darker tendencies of the South that stem from its racist past, which seems to be eroding (but not fast enough)."
"Coming late to the thread. I've seen both, and both are quite good.
Thing is that the first movie was a bit more of a "star vehicle" that had John Wayne playing Rooster Cogburn playing John Wayne and Glenn Campbell trying to…"
"O.K. at the risk off interjecting a question into a conversation I'm not in, here goes anyway...
